Description

This book explores and reconsiders the current vision of the achievements in mind transfer technology and digital immortality from a biomedical point of view. It provides a systematic review of the technological accomplishments in the field of mind transfer. It introduces a novel analytical philosophical piece of this research in scientific realism with a focus on the probable scenario for the further development of humankind. It analyses that the dramatic progress of biomedical engineering and nanotechnology promises to revolutionize medicine in the upcoming decade. It discusses about some inventions, including the magic-bullet multifunctional devices, that will allow us to develop whole brain emulation technology by 2045, and simultaneously draws attention to the fact that mind transfer will be infeasible until there is a breakthrough in neurophysiology and quantum physics. It highlights that the mind transfer technology has a potential to immortalize a human being in a space–time multidimensional and technological singularity with the assistance of artificial superintelligence. It also pays special attention to sexuality as a cornerstone of the future civilization.
